W is for Waterfall Card

Stampin Up Waterfall Fun Fold Birthday card using This Little Piggy stamp set. For more fun fold card ideas visit www.juststampin.com

Welcome back to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a Waterfall card…It’s raining Pigs!  I absolutely love “This Little Piggy” stamp set and thought I would have some fun with them on today’s card. You will be amazed how easy this card is to create and whoever receives it (if you can part with it) will have tons of fun pulling the tab and seeing what comes next!

Here’s the details to make this fun waterfall card…

I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo for my card base. I adhered a piece of DSP that measures 4 x 5 1/4 piece to the base. The pull tab measures 2 x 8 1/2 and is scored at 1 3/4, 2 3/4, and 3 3/4.  Fold the score lines facing you. Punch the long end with the Tag Topper Punch.

img_4117

The images are stamped on 3 pieces of 1 3/4 x 2 pieces of Shimmery White using the Basic Black Archival Ink and colored using an Aqua Painter. These are layered on 2 x 2 1/4 pieces of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered to the pull tab with sticky strip. Attach the sticky strip against the folded edge.

Adhere pull tab to a 1 x 4 1/4 strip with Tear & Tape. Attach Tear & Tape to the ends of the strip and center on the card front.

Fold a piece of 5″ ribbon through the tab for to pull the waterfall. These little piggies are so stinkin’ cute! I stamped the front of my envelope to match and used the same DSP on the flap. Fun and Done!

V is for V Fold

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a V fold card.  I love the surprise inside when you open this card.

Stampin Up fun fold card using Beautiful Bouquet, Floral Statements, and Thankful Thoughts stamp sets with Bouquet Bunch Framelits. For directions and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

This is not as hard as it may look.  I have lots of photos for you. My Basic Balck card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. The inside piece is 5 x 8 whisper white scored at 4″. I measured 1 1/4 inches on either side of the center score line and made a mark.  I also marked 1 1/4 down the center score line. Then I used the Stampin’ Trimmer and scored from the marks across the top to the mark on the center score line.

 

 

Fold along the center score line then gently fold the sides forward.  It looks like a V.

 

I used the Boutquet Bunch Framelits to cut 2 stems to adhere on each side of the “V”. These will fold in when the card is closed.  Do not adhere on the center fold.

 

Stamp and cut flowers to adhere to the bouquet. I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and matching framelits. You can purchase this set as a bundle (145297) and Save 10%.

 

Here’s a close up of the flowers. I added a few Perfect White Accents and Pearl Basic Jewels to the centers of some of the flowers.

U is for Upright Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card features the new Bright Wishes Stamp Set. It is an Upright Z-Fold which is quite unique.

Fun Fold Upright Z Fold card using Stampin Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and watercolor pencils. For more ideas, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

The wishing well reminds me of my childhood.  We had a wishing well in the middle of our side lawn and it served as second base for many kickball and softball games. I remember tossing pennies in the well and making a wish! Here’s a photo of me standing by our wishing well when I was 5.

img_2119-1
I couldn’t resist using a penny to hold my card “upright”.  Here’s the details how to make this unique fun fold.

My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The DSP is from Delightful Daisy. My pieces measure 4 x 5 1/4 and 4 x 2 1/2.  The stamped panel is 3 x 4 layered with 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Basic Black.

Fun Fold Upright Z Fold card using Stampin Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and watercolor pencils. For more ideas, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

I liked it in the black and white but then decided to color it using the watercolor pencils and blender pen.

Which way do you like it…black & white or colored?

Here’s the side view.

This really is quick & easy to make. Just make sure when adhering your stamped panel you only put adhesive on the bottom half.  I attached the penny with a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold the card upright. You could easily stamp a sentiment and pop it up to hold your panel.  I chose to stamp my sentiment on the back for this card.

img_3262

I really like the sentiments in this set…the different choices make it versatile for many occasions.

T is for Tunnel Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold is a Tunnel card.  It is so cool when you open it up to reveal the “tunnel” on the inside of the card.

Stampin Up Fun Fold Tunnel Card using High Tide stamp set. For directions, supplies, and inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

Stampin Up Fun Fold Tunnel Card using High Tide stamp set. For directions, supplies, and inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

I love lighthouses! When I first saw the High Tide Stamp Set I knew I had to have it. I enjoy visiting lighthouses during our travels and learning the history of each. I made this card for my husband for Father’s Day.  I am usually very last minute; however, this year I am going to be away for Father’s Day so I needed to make his card before I left. I love this sentiment from High Tide…it works for Father’s Day as well as other occasions. Parenting is not always easy and it helps to have someone to support you with the tough decisions. I feel like we got lucky in the kid department…we are blessed with two wonderful children and we are so proud of both of them.

Let’s get to today’s card…

You need two 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ sheets of card stock. The “window” piece is scored at 2-1/8, 4-1/4″ & 6-3/8″. I used Shimmery White and Marina Mist.

img_3147

Die cut a window in the center of the window piece (I used the Layering Circles Framelits).

The “base” piece is stamped before folded in half. I did a watercolor wash on the top portion of my card using Soft Sky Ink and my Aqua Painter. I stamped the water with Marina Mist ink then sponged it with a sponge dauber.

img_3141

Adhere the left panel and the right panel of the window piece to the base piece.

Decorate the front of the card as you like.  I used Shimmery White cardstock and did the same watercolor wash, stamping, and sponging as I did on the inside. I used Sahara Sand around the base of my lighthouse. The lighthouse is a two step stamp.  I used Dapper Denim and Smoky Slate then fussy cut the lighthouse.

img_3146

I stamped the sentiment from Crazy About You in Marina Mist and layered this piece on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Marina Mist. I wrapped some Linen Thread and tied and bow before adhering it to the card base. It really is a simple card with a WOW factor when you open it! Some simple stamping on the envelope flap and it’s done! (A week ahead…I think this might be a record for me!! LOL)

S is for a Step Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Before I get to today’s card I want to share some alphabet fun with you. Friday was my last day with my Pre-K students. We ended the year with a performance of the Alphabet Tree by Leo Lionni.  This is a great children’s book with a wonderful message for the President!  (I adapted the story for our performance.)  My students were absolutely adorable as letters (leaves on the tree) working together to make words under the advice and guidance from a couple of insects.

img_3071

My daughter baked over 7 dozen cupcakes to make an alphabet tree.  We had alphabet pretzels, crackers, and cookies too! Yummy from A to Z!

It is always such a joy to see how much my students grow and learn each year.  I am thankful I had such a wonderful group of supportive parents too…look at these adorable totes they put together!

img_2916

The school year may be over for my students but my alphabet series with fun folds isn’t. Today’s card is a fun fold step card.  I wanted to make a special thank you card. I thought the tree from Thoughts & Prayers went with our alphabet tree.  (It would have been cute with the Labeler Alphabet stamps on the tree!)

Stampin Up Fun Fold Step card using Thought & Prayers and Floral Phrases stamp sets. For directions, supplies, and card inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

Here’s how to make this step card step-by-step.

  1. Line 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock in paper trimmer so that the right edge of the card is at the 1″ mark. Position the cutting blade at 1″ and cut from 1″ to 5 1/4″. Flip card over and do the same on the other side.

     

  2. Place cardstock on to scoring tool and score along the long side of the card from the edge to the cut line at 1″, 2″ and 5 1/4″  .  Repeat on the opposite edge of the card.
  3. Score between cut lines at 4 1/4″.

img_3059

4. Fold at the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Reinforce score lines with a bone folder to make folds crisp.

5. Stamp and decorate your card.

I used markers to ink the tree and stamped it on a piece of 3 1/4 x 3 Very Vanilla cardstock.  I layered it with Early Espresso cardstock 1/8″ larger at 3 3/8″ x 3 1/8″. I wrapped the new 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon and tied a knot. The DSP on the sides measures 7/8″ x 3″. The sentiment could be changed for thinking of you, sympathy, masculine birthday, etc. I have used this stamp for so many different cards. (I added hearts to the tree and made a Valentine card one time.) This stamp set is a keeper!

R is for Rocker Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. I am over the top in love with today’s fun fold cards…they Rock!

Stampin Up Rocker cards. For directions and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

I didn’t know what I was going to make for a fun fold for R and then Chris R. suggested a rocker fold. Well Chris R., YOU ROCK!  This fold is definitely FUN!!!!! I can’t stop playing with it and watching it rock.  I made a video for you…don’t blink or you’ll miss it! LOL

How sweet is this?! I needed a baby card and the Moon Baby Stamp Set was a perfect choice for this type of fold.  I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky cardstock scored at 4 1/4.  I used an old scrapbooking circle cutter to cut the base but you could use a bowl and trace a half circle on the fold.

I embossed the front using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock and used the Aqua Painter to watercolor. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the circle. I’ve shared before how much I love and use the Grid Paper. You can see in the photo below I used the grid paper to line up my card and make sure the circle didn’t go above 4 1/4″ so it would fit in a standard envelope.

img_2895

I added some clouds cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies. Then I fussy cut a dazzling star and attached it with a glue dot.

Q is for Quarter Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold card is quite different, a Quarter Fold. It’s quick & easy to make and you fold it like you would a packing box.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card using Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set.. For more fun fold cards, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

This card showcases the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.  Today is your last chance to get this paper before it retires. The bright fun colors of this card just scream birthday to me. I used the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set (also retiring) to stamp my sentiment. This has been one of my favorite stamp sets.  It has cool fonts and lots of sentiments for tons of versatility!

To make this fun quarter fold card you need to start with 2 pieces of cardstock (4 1/4 x 11, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2). Trim a sliver (1/16″) off the long end of each piece so the widths are actually 4 3/16 x 11 and 5 7/16 x 8 1/2.  This will allow the cards to fit together and close easier. Score the 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock at 2 3/4 from each end.  Score the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock at 2 1/8 from each end. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the two pieces of cardstock together, lining up the edges with the score lines. (It doesn’t matter which one in inside.)

Fold on each of the score lines and crease using a bone folder. Decorate with DSP or cardstock measuring 2 x 2 5/8.

I used the pansy punch to cut a flower from melon mambo cardstock.  I added a White Perfect Accent in the middle and attached it with glue dots.

Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock for the inside.  I used the Stylized Birthday stamp and Tempting Turquoise ink. The little flowers are from the Designer Tin of Tags Stamp set that I used on the front of the card.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card using Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set.. For more fun fold cards, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

Fold the card as you would close a packing box. Fold in the left side, fold up the bottom, fold in the right side, then tuck the left corner of the top flap underneath the left side panel.

This card would be great to hold confetti or a monetary gift. (No worries of it slipping out!) The card fits in a standard envelope.

P is for Pop Up Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is one I have made several times.  I love this Pop-Up fun fold!

Pop Up Fun Fold Card. For directions and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

I used the Affectionately Your Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card base.  This piece is a thick cardstock with copper embossing.  Oh how I love it! It is retiring tomorrow so if I were you I would stock up now…it’s even on sale!!! Click HERE to add this to your shopping cart.

To make the pop up card you need a piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4 x 11. Score at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, 10. Line it up in the personal trimmer in the center (at the 5 1/2 inch score line) and trim from 3/4 inches – 3 1/2 inches. The arrow on the cutting blade makes  it easy to see where to cut.

Next, fold the cardstock along the center cut line and trim the opening with paper snips for a clean cut along the score line.  Then fold along all score lines. Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive along the top and bottom of the card base.

img_2766

I heat embossed the sentiment from Big on Birthdays on a piece of 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 Night of Navy cardstock using Copper Embossing Powder. I layered the sentiment on Flirty Flamingo cardstock that’s just 1/4″ larger (2 3/4 x 5 1/2). Notice how I stamped higher on the cardstock to make sure it would show when the card is sitting in the base.  I used the Star Blast Edgelits Dies (also retiring) to cut the design from Copper Foil.  I adhered it with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

The card slides up and down through the slot.  It’s so cool how it folds flat for mailing and is free standing once it is opened.  I wrapped some of the new Copper Trim around the card and tied a bow. I punched the flower from Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the Pansy Punch and stamped the center with VersaMark using the Love & Affection Stamp Set and heat embossed it before adhering it to the card front. I adhered a piece of 2 1.4 x 6″ piece of DSP to the envelope and trimmed the excess.

Here are some other Pop-Up cards I made previously using the Gift of Love Stamp Set (retiring May 31). You can click on the image to see the original post with lots photos.

O is for Origami Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. I have two origami cards for you today.  I have always loved origami ever since I was in elementary school. My fourth grade teacher introduced me to this and I would be in awe of everything she made.

My first origami fun fold is a shadow box fold in red, white, and blue in honor of Memorial Day.

This one is quick and easy to do. I started with the Whisper White note cards & envelopes and added a 2 x 5 strip of Night of Navy across the middle.  My DSP measures 4 x 4.  I folded it in half and creased with my bone folder.  Then I opened it and folded it in half in the opposite direction. Next, I folded the points to where the fold lines intersect and creased each time with the bone folder.  Then I took each tip and folded it back to the edge and creased with the bone folder.

I adhered this to the center of my note card.  Then I cut a navy star using the smallest star from the Star Framelits (retiring May 31). I attached this to the center with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

That’s all there is to it.  You could easily make a bunch of these in no time at all.  A set of 20 note cards & envelopes is only $6.  There are many variations you could do with this design…just changing out the DSP would give it a totally different look.  Add a flower, heart, or sentiment in the center or even turn it so it is a diamond shape instead of a square.  It’s definitely a fun fold that’s fun to make!

This next origami fold is a little more time consuming but still fairly easy to do and lots of fun. This card makes a statement when you open it!

Start with a piece of 8 x 8 cardstock and score at 2 & 6 on both sides.

Fold all score lines using a bone folder.  Fold again in the opposite direction. (This will allow the folds to fold easily.) Mark the center at 4″.  Fold each corner into the center. Notice how the score lines line up. Fold using a bone folder.

Unfold the cardstock with the square in front of you. Push the sides (with the large triangles) in with your fingers on the fold and push the square down to make it flat. Do this on all four sides.

 

Next, take the inside corners and fold over, folding each in half to form triangles. Make sure to line up all the edges and points and crease with a bone folder.

Next you can decorate as you like.

Cut (2) 2 1/2″ squares of DSP.   Cut these in half from point to point to make 4 large triangles.  *When cutting from points it is best to place your blade in the center and cut up and down rather than try to start at the point.

Cut (8) 1 3/4″ squares of DSP and cut in half to make 16 small triangles.

Cut a 3 1/2″ square to stamp your sentiment and layer with a 3 3/4″ square.

Adhere these to the card base.

The belly band measures 9 x 1 1/4 with a 9 x 1 strip of DSP.  Wrap lightly around the card and adhere.  You want to make sure you can slide it on and off easily.

The DSP diamond on the front is a 1 3/4″ square layered on a 2″ square. I embossed and fussy cut the flower from the Floral Affection Embossing Folder and attached it on the front.

This card fits in a regular envelope. (I plan to hand deliver mine.)

N is for Never Ending Card

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold card is never ending! This is my first never ending card and I can’t stop playing with it! I always thought it looked way too complicated; however, after watching a video on Splitcoast Stampers, I realized it’s not as difficult as it looks. Here’s my card showing the 4 different views… you keep opening the folds until you are back at the beginning…hence, never ending! So much fun!!!
